The recent federal budget announcement included substantial funding for the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), along with a commitment to establish stable annual funding for the CFI by 2023/24. Therefore we anticipate that there is likely to be an Innovation Fund call announced later this year.

These projects are large and complex and in order to be successful a high level of cooperation from across campus is needed. A coordinated institutional plan for early identification and vetting of potential projects has been jointly developed by Research Services Office and Facilities & Operations, with input from Faculties and a number of other campus units involved in infrastructure project implementation (EHS, SMS, TEC Edmonton, IST, CAR and Libraries).
